Can I get pregnant if the egg is not fertilised?

Some people think that pregnancy starts when an egg is fertilised by the sperm. Actually pregnancy is defined as beginning at implantation: the moment a fertilised egg attaches itself to the wall of the uterus. So pregnancy can actually begin days after having unprotected sex.
